Rahul Gandhi appointed as Congress VP
January 19, 2013 11:55pm CST
In a recent happening at Indian political affairs, Rahul Gandhi has been appointed as the Vice President of Indian National Congress party, a party that is ruling for past 2 terms. He will be replacing Dr.Manmohan Singh as Congress presidential candidate for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. Also he will be looking after the Congress election campaign & strategy for the 2014 polls. This is a breaking news in Indian political sphere. Congress, in past 2 years was unable to meet voter's expectations. Be it corruption, or crimes or the general economic growth. Inflation has risen so much, impacting the poor & middle class. Increase in recent crime rates has also proved Congress inability to maintain law & order. Corruption has been a focus for long now. We saw emergence of "India against Corruption" campaign by Anna Hazare & Arvind Kejriwal. Economic slowdown has also added to Congress failure. In wake of all these failures, can Rahul Gandhi now turn the tide in Congress favour? The first & foremost advantage Rahul holds is that he is a youngster. India have a majority young population. He is vibrant & challenging. He can make quick decisions. He can be a youth icon for millions of youth voters. In past Rahul has shown compassion too towards the Indian poor. He has visited some sites in past years to know about the Indian poor. Also, he is a Gandhi - a factor we cannot neglect in India at least. Rahul will have his direct competition with BJP Narendra Modi, Gujarat Chief minister. Narendra Modi has a mass following among India. He is turned Gujarat into a self-sustaining state & put it as an example for other states to learn. Gujarat is now leading the Indian states towards development in education, employment & infrastructure. Narendra modi is surely a direct competitor for Rahul Gandhi who is difficult to beat. He is energetic, profound, dedicated & strategist. So as Rahul Gandhi take over as Congress VP, he has many challenges to face. First, to improve Congress image among Indian poor & middle class and secondly to face stiff competition from opposition party leaders. May the Best party win.

Thanks a ton for sharing this discussion. Well i am happy with the decision knowing the fact that this news might not be much effective for many in India. i have always believed that Rahul should have been given a major role since the beginning as he looks to me honest and firm in his decisions and actions. I know may would object me over this but even the existing ministers have also not done anything crucial for us also. What say?
